Improving program performance using automatic tools has been the subject of research stretching back to the dawn of high-level programming languages. For some, it is the perfect research topic - always room for improvement. For others, it is something that time and again fails to deliver. In this talk I will explore why compiler-based code optimisation has often failed to deliver. I will also look at ways we can recast compiler optimisation so that it can meet the challenges of legacy, parallelism and heterogeneity.
